About Knog

Born in Melbourne enjoyed the world over

While our products flash and ding and lighten up the world, we are a proudly Australian design business founded in 2002. Our home is in Melbourne, but we’ve taken flight all over the world.

Co-founders Hugo Davidson (designer) and Mal McKechnie (engineer) started working together long before Knog. They’ve always shared the same vision: to make unboring things.

Knog makes innovative products that inspire people to explore the great outdoors on foot or two wheels.

Our obsession, is your freedom

Our obsession, is your freedom

Knog has been designing innovative products since 2002. In all that time, we’ve never made a product that encourages you to chill indoors. We want you to go out. We want to be with you in the rain, in the sun, lighting up dark laneways, helping you see, and helping you be heard. We design products so we’re with you on the town, on the road, and in the wilderness.
